Organisations supporting protests cannot be deprived of foreign funds

The Supreme Court recently ruled that an organisation supporting public causes by legitimate means of opposition like ‘bandh’ and ‘hartal’ cannot be deprived of its legitimate right of receiving foreign funds.

But the organisations which are used for channelling the foreign funds by political parties shall come under the purview of Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA). The act was enacted in 2010 to regulate the acceptance and utilization of Foreign contribution.
